As the local kid who attended city-run after-school programs in west Phoenix and whose father took the city bus every day to sell shoes at J.C. Penney, Stanton said this is his chance to keep giving back to the community. Stanton said he wants to become the “education mayor” and “fight for every child in Phoenix,” including his own kids: 4-year-old Trevor and 1-year-old Violet.

Phoenix mayoral candidate Wes Gullett conceded the Phoenix mayors race to Greg Stanton, who ended the night with 56 percent of the vote a 13-point lead over his opponent.
